In society when you hear the term “strong women,” something comes to mind: a mother, a sister, a friend, perhaps even the person looking back at you in the mirror.
The term “strong woman” evokes characteristics like bravery, morality, dedication, wisdom and intelligence. Unfortunately, we don’t always see these qualities portrayed on screen. But recently, a film came out that embodied a true sense of strength for women.
Media reflects how our society views things, and being a male-dominated society, female viewpoints often aren’t being represented. “Wonder Woman” is a movie that connects the realism of our views, translated on screen to the masses. It is a refreshing, impactful and much needed portrayal of a strong woman in our time.
Diana Prince is driven by self- awareness, confidence and belief in love. Diana’s strength resides in her love for her home, her family and others close to her. Women can be more than one thing and still be considered strong. It can be substance. It can be personal. Imagine a generation of girls growing up in a world where the media shows them those kinds of women.
